"He then failed to stop for the metro police officers who had to chase him and cut him off in his gold Bentley on Corlett Drive," said Minnaar.

The MEC was immediately arrested and charged with reckless and negligent driving.

He was taken to the Midrand police station where he was later released on R1 500 bail.
